Romney for President?

May 19, 2019

On Sunday, May 17, 2019, CNN’s Jake Tapper conducted an eleven minute interview with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) that will raise the hackles of Trump supporters and even traditional Republican voters.

Candidate Donald Trump, for reasons not clearly expressed, did not attract the endorsement of Republican voters who are members of the Church of Latter Day Saints. “Mormons” are very serious about saintliness and the evidence is clear:  Donald Trump did not live a saintly life and exhibited serious character flaws.

What was unusual, however, was Mormon rejection of this particular Republican once Donald Trump was nominated.

After all, Mormons and traditional Republicans had nowhere to go, but vote for Donald Trump.  Most Republicans voted for Trump reluctantly. Reasoning that President Trump would nominate conservative jurists to the Supreme Court of the United States and protect American culture from Godlessness, Fundamentalist Protestant Christians unanimously supported Donald Trump.

The interview that Sen. Romney gave today signified that Willard Mitt Romney may challenge Donald Trump in 2020 and that, most certainly, he will be a candidate for President of the United States in 2024.

Underlying this decision are some geological faults in American politics. The largest broken aspect of our politics is the unwillingness of qualified persons to seek public office.  Our media is designed by training to expose the faults of Republicans and especially conservative Republicans. Who needs that?

None but the morally callused, power hungry, or ignorant office seekers are willing to endure this gauntlet. In Mitt’s interview with Jake Tapper, he placed Donald Trump in the category of the morally callused, power hungry, and ignorant.
